Because these J. Crew Crackled Metallic Moccasins ($55) are cozy. And they're gold.

The Lyndon Cowl Scarf  ($65) is one of our favorite winter finds. It looks like real fur, is soft as hell and casts you in a beautiful glow.

Who doesn't love the classic Bottega Veneta basketweave tote bags and wallets? And who doesn't hate the price? Enter these perfectly perfect rubberized bags that I have lovingly named The Fauxtega. They come in dozens of colors (including a reversible option), are incredibly affordable ($60-150) and make a great beach tote as well. I'm a little unclear as to where they really come from, but if you email Stacie, she will get them to you. The mystique is part of the appeal.

Walk in James Bond’s shoes. Literally. These Danner Mountain Light II boots ($350) are the EXACT ones Daniel Craig sported in Spectre.

I am always in search of the perfect work bag, and I think I found it in this leather studded tote ($395). It's lightweight (REALLY lightweight), chic and holds everything. Plus it comes in a nice array of colors.

Rain boots. I don't even know what to say except that they SUCK. And it's not just that they suck because wearing them means it's raining. They suck because it's almost impossible to look stylish on top while donning galoshes on the bottom. Unless you have these. I stumbled upon them on my never-ending search through Zappos, and I literally did a victory dance. They're by Gentle Souls by Kenneth Cole (random), cost $140, are super comfortable and they DO NOT LOOK LIKE RAIN BOOTS. You're welcome.

I wish I could wear heels every day. I see women running down the street in their red-bottomed stilettos and I am so envious as I trek through the city in my hightops and motorcycle boots. And then I found these sandals by Loeffler Randall ($425). They come in black, red and cheetah (shown above, and my personal fave), have a 3.5" heel and are somehow so flexible and cushioned that I ALMOST don't feel like I'm wearing heels.

I still don't love heels, and these aren't the most comfortable I've ever worn, but they aren't the worst either, and there's something about these Club Monaco Lula pumps ($269) that I just really love. They make me feel like a grown up but are sexy at the same time. I wear mine with a pencil skirt and a silk blouse and suddenly, I'm in charge.
